    suspect and doubt (same question but not answered)

    Dear teachers,
    This is a question that I posted the other day but hasn't been not answered yet. So I post it again:

    The following is from my dictionary:

    suspect: to not trust; to doubt
    doubt: to not trust or have confidence in somebody

    My question is: Can I replace "suspect" with "doubt" in the following sentences?

    I have no reason to suspect her honesty/loyalty.
    We suspected his motives in making his offer.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    The only thing I can tell you is that this is called COLLOCATIONS, It is only possible be answered by a native speaker of the language.
